Sparkling acting highlights juicy drama/comedy.
9 December 1999 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

A near-perfect study of life's transitional period between careless partying and responsible adulthood, this addictive British series touches a nerve with anyone who's waged that cumbersome battle. The absorbing characters and first-rate acting draw the viewer in until you feel like you want to jump into the fray yourself. Don't miss this on BBC America.
